Draft at fireworks leesburg. Pours yellow with an inch of white foam that disappears very quickly and leaves little lacing. Slight lemongrass note on the nose. Lots of bitterness on the tongue without a lot of balance. Eh!

Tap at beer study. Golden with small white head, bits of sticky lace. Nose citrus, resin, grassy, light chalk, sweet and low. Flavor is super green and herbal, lightly bitter but no hop flavor other than the leafy herbal thing astringent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear golden with lots of fluffy, white head that stuck around for a long time and there is nice lacing. Aroma is mainly pine with some citrus, peach and floral notes. Taste is a bitter pine (but not a hop bomb like many DIPAs) with just a hint of caramel malt. Light to medium bodied with a very dry finish. I would never expect this was 8.5% abv and it reminds me more of an IPA than a DIPA. A decent beer but it needs some more complexity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very different smelling and tasting Double IPA, but good. Aroma is not typical for the style, smells like plums, perhaps some tropical fruit, and bready / yeasty. Fair amount of bitterness upfront and a little dry, but nice body. Finish is some different hop fruit/floral flavors that are a bit unusual. Overall, a nice beer just given itís uniqueness, but not your typical DIPA. Very nice price on this as well at around $10 a 6 pack.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Tap at flying saucer st louis
Pours very bright orange hue with an awesome whispy white soapy hear and lacing was fantastic nose is not very good somewhat fusel grains not much hops almost smells like a grainy pale ale not a iipa! Flavors of lite floral hops some sugary oranges with low but astringent bitterness hmmm Iím very disappointed in this brew really not what I was expect
ReRate-i had a 6pk of this a few weeks ago and over the course of the session, i liked the beer a little more than i had it the one time on tap. Nose still has that soemwhat earthy/green onion thing going on with a touch of dank nugs however, its not all that punchy. Could have been a great beer however, not a bad beer, especially since its in their mainline beer selection.

Old straw by givenchy. Perfume and wet hay prevail after slightly peachy, piney aroma. Been a while since I had a beer this bad. Iíve thrown out beer that Iíve brewed that tasted better. Felt I owed nb a try of their new offering. No longer feel so kindly. What to do with 5 more?

22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 7/7/2013. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pine, lemon zest, pineapple, light honey, pine resin, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of hop notes with a fairly moderate malt backbone; very unique aromas as well. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, peach, pine, lemon zest, orange rind, pineapple, floral, light honey, pine resin, and floral earthiness. Nice amount of citrus pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, peach, pine, lemon, pineapple, floral, light honey, and pine resin on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a light-moderate malt backbone; with some light cloying pine bitterness on the finish, but not really that bad. Medium carbonation and body; with a very sticky, crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. Very nice and unique hop complexity with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. The Mosaic and Calypso hops were definitely different, but it worked out very well. No complaints at all, really enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a small white froth. Aroma is peachy and piney with some slight tropical fruit notes. Some light biscuit and sweet caramel notes behind. Flavor starts with a sharp pine, woody note that quickly turns to a more fruity peach and citrus character. Finishes bitter but still sweet and herbal. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Decent double ipa.
